Nikolai Anosov (1900 - 1962)

The Soviet conductor Nikolai Anosov was born in Borissoglebsk, a town about four hundred miles south of Moscow. His education was extensive: he spoke ten languages and was a fine pianist. His conducting career began during the 1930s at Rostov and Baku and he led the first performance of Khachaturian’s Dance Suite in Moscow in 1933. The German conductor Kurt Sanderling has mentioned in an interview how in 1936 he met Anosov and played many pieces for piano four hands with him, including Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 1. Anosov was in fact an early admirer of the music of Dmitri Shostakovich and conducted the first performance of his Piano Concerto No. 2, with Maxim Shostakovich as soloist, in Moscow in 1957. He was professor of conducting at the Moscow Conservatory from 1940 until 1962, and was chief conductor of the Moscow Symphony Orchestra during the 1940s.
